Delta Gamma embraces our motto to "Do Good" by being committed to philanthropy, whether it be to our national philanthropy, our local philanthropy, or those sponsored by others within and without the Greek community. We seize each opportunity that we are given to better ourselves, the community, and the world.
Protecting the gift of sight is one of Delta Gamma's highest priorities. Delta Gamma is the only Panhellenic chapter on the UC Irvine campus with their own foundation, created and founded by Delta Gamma's, benefitting our philanthropy, Service for Sight. This program keeps our charitable focus on financially and emotionally supporting individuals challenged with blindness and visual impairments.

Check out just a few of our opportunities to DO GOOD!
Every Fall we kick off the school year with a huge favorite among the Greek community, Anchorsplash! During this week long event we raise funds at our booth on Ring Road and host a campuswide at the DG house. These efforts culminate with our weekend Anchorsplash event at the ARC pool. Fraternities perform synchronized dances and swimming routines that always prove to be crowd pleasers. Last year we raised $14,000 and our winners were the gentlemen of Phi Psi!
DELTA GRAND SLAM
This past spring we hosted our first ever Delta Grand Slam! For this baseball themed event we had a week of boothing on Ring Road, our Slices for Sight pizza campuswide at the DG house, and finally a home run derby at the ARC fields with teams consisting of various members of the UCI community. We raised $6,000 during this event and can't wait to raise more next spring!
We are thrilled to be one of the few sororities on campus that gets to work hands on with our local philanthropy, Beyond Blindness, so closely. Not only do we raise funds and awareness for Beyond Blindness, but we help out in their classrooms and get to personally interact with their students during biweekly volunteer opportunities at their Santa Ana campus. We also participate in and volunteer at events they hold throughout the year like their Valentine's Party, Earth Day Celebration or their Annual 5k Walk!
